How method Inspired My Greener Living

One of my favorite things about Chicago is that I learn new things every day. There are places, people, neighborhoods, shops, and restaurants to discover nearby. I was fortunate enough to tour one of these inspiring locations last week — Chicago's very own Southside Soapbox (the method home factory) and Gotham Greens Urban Greenhouse. After an exciting behind-the-scenes look, we did a walking tour of the Pullman neighborhood. It was a fantastic day, so be sure to click through for more eye candy from my day on the city's southside.

You've Got Nail 73


This month I took a little break from my Scratch wraps and decided to try out the nails that got me into false nails — Claire's and Icing! Most people don't know this, but Claire's and Icing Stores were my first retail jobs. I worked for the company when I was in college and managed stores in the Columbus, Ohio, area. Weird, right? Well, I used to buy their faux nails because they always had some cute designs and were really affordable. I decided to try out some of their current styles and kicked it off with these matte camo stilettos. Nails courtesy of Icing by Claire's. See more nail styles here on the Claire's or Icing website!

Facetory March and April Boxes


It took me a while to get through these two boxes since I had my freckles and eyebrows tattooed last month! I was unable to do any sheet masks for a couple of weeks and I was dying to get back into my routine! Well, I finally made it through all ten (and now I have my June box waiting to be reviewed) and there were so many good sheet masks in these! Click through for more details and links.

Microblading by Micro Penny Cosmetic Tattoo


As many of you know, I started tattooing eyebrows at the beginning of this year using a method referred to as microblading. The kind of "semi-permanent" tattoo (more information on that phrasing below!) has grown in popularity over the past couple of years and is a great way to enhance or create your perfect eyebrows. Finally, after months of working with the mosts wonderful clients, I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about microblading and my services at Micro Penny Cosmetic Tattoo here on my blog. Feel free to read through and let me know in the comments if you have any questions! Additionally, at the end of this post I will let you know how you can book in Chicago and some upcoming travel plans in the midwest incase you're interested!
